IBM Rational Performance Test Server provides the ability to create large-scale multi-user workloads with service-level or application-level performance tests that are created in Rational Test Workbench. It contains IBM Rational Performance Tester Agent, which generates load as defined by Rational Performance Tester test schedules, and IBM Rational Integration Tester Agent, which executes performance tests created in Rational Integration Tester. For both of these components, you can install more agents on multiple computers for greater load capacity. However, you must have at least one agent installed to run a load test.
